The Catholic Culture Podcast


A weekly podcast hosted by musician and writer Thomas V. Mirus, exploring everything Catholic, with a special focus on arts and culture. Dedicated to the Holy Family. An extension of CatholicCulture.org.

Jan 29, 2019

Many people want to study the great books of the western world in a group setting, but are unable to study at a Great Books college like St. John’s, and it’s not easy to find people willing to commit to read and meet to discuss the books regularly. I was in that club until I found a new company called Online Great Books. It provides both the books and the people to discuss them with via video conferencing software, all on a schedule that normal, busy folks can keep up with. I want to let people in on the fun I’ve been having, so I invited OGB founder Scott Hambrick to join me on the show.

OGB’s latest enrollment period began on January 28th (the day before this podcast came out) and will stay open for about seven days. Get in there using discount code “catholicculture” for 25% off your first three months!
